The goal is to produce a robot wheelchair capable of navigating Carnegie Mellon’s campus, traveling from my office to the Campus Bookstore to fetch a book autonomously. To this end, this project encompasses challenges in vision, navigation, learning, obstacle avoidance in a dynamic world and planning with incomplete information. The project uses a robot chassis that is actually an electric wheelchair! Localization and sidewalk-following will be performed exclusively using passive vision. For an informal discussion of vision and navigation, see the Monologue on Navigation.
